Craig Banister

Director of Marketing and Communications

Craig joined the RGI team in 2015 as an intern and joined as a staff member in 2018. During his time at RGI, he has worked with associations in the commercial real estate, corporate housing, healthcare engineering, nutrition education and legal industries. He currently leads the communication and marketing internship program at RGI where he recruits and oversees interns looking to grow their skills. 

He graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a B.A. in Communication with a double emphasis in public relations and electronic media. He holds a social media marketing certification through HubSpot Academy as well as two marketing certificates through the Association Acadamy. Craig was selected as an ASAE NextGen Scholar in 2022.

Craig enjoys working in associations because it allows him to problem-solve and think strategically to drive membership and event attendance. While he is not working, Craig enjoys working on his 1940’s fixer-upper, traveling to national parks with his wife and finding the next good book to read.
